The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Nuanced, delicate and silky in the glass, the 2015 speaks to the finesse that is such a signature of Margaux. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and floral notes mesh together in an effortless, gracious wine with a bright future. This is the first vintage Stephane Derenoncourt and his team made in the new cellar. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine has a tightly wound bouquet, crisp and a little leaner than some of its Margaux compadres. It just feels contained at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with gruff tannin on the entry. There is respectable depth here, but it feels linear and rather predictable towards the blackberry and cedar finish. I would like to see more complexity and personality come through by the time of bottling. It feels a bit bolshie at the moment. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

This is really exceptional this year. Full body, very velvety tannins, wet earth, mushroom and currant character. Very stoney. Very long and flavor. Greatest wine in the history of the estate. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Lovely dark currant and plum reduction notes are carried by velvety tannins, with a light charcoal shading on the finish. Suave. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com
